  • Melania Trump's office denied a report the first lady has been out of the public eye because she is caring for her ailing mother Amalija Knavs

It has been more than three weeks since First Lady Melania Trump made her last public appearance when she joined the President at Andrews Air Force Base to welcome home hostages from North Korea on May 10th.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to head to the Maryland retreat on Friday afternoon, but his wife will not be seen boarding the presidential helicopter with him.

She will likely remain there for the duration of the week", he office said at the time. Speculation about her long absence includes possible tensions in the Trump marriage or a medical issue.

On Thursday night, she tweeted: "I'm here at the White House with my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!".
